The first meeting of the creditors of John Bayfield Abbs, licensed victualler of the White Hart, was held on Wednesday 8th May 1907. It was heard that being unable to make a living at the White Hart he had taken out a hawker's licence, by which time he had lost all of his capital and was in debt.
His deficiency was £165 9s 10d.
Mr. Abbs said his failure was due to bad trade, the death of a horse, sickness in the family and the loss, 7th March at Hingham Fair, of a purse containing £28 in sovereigns.
He had previously been licensee at the CURRIERS ARMS and then the DUKE OF WELLINGTON,  Norwich.
When the White Hart closed in 1906, he received the sum of £51 in compensation of which the brewers Messrs. Morgans demanded £24 in rent. Another writ was then issued by them for goods. The money he lost at Hingham was the remainder of his assets and included the remaining  compensation money. He swore that he had not given the money to his brother to buy a horse. He had given up hawking.
